The International Wine Challenge launches in China - IWC China



IWC is proud to announce the launch of the International Wine Challenge China (IWC China).

IWC China will adopt the same rigorous judging process as the IWC have in London for the last 35 years, this has been the pillar of its success and is recognised by producers and consumers around the world.

Andrew Reed, owner of IWC commented:“IWC China is a very exciting project as we will be the first globally recognised competition to be operating out of mainland China. We are confident that with the combined assistance of the SIWC we will be able to continue with our mission of helping producers from all over the world sell more wine in their targeted markets. I am delighted that we will hold our events at the excellent facilities owned by the ITOC and the CCPIT.

It will be the only international competition and accreditation awards of its kind to be held on mainland China.

Cici Li from Shanghai Waigaoqiao International Exhibition & Trading Center Co., Ltd commented:“We are very pleased to be cooperating with IWC and look forward to helping more international wines gain recognition in China, as well as Chinese wines gain international recognition from such an important competition. This will also allow a better understanding of different wine cultures and enhance the wine trade internationally.”

The first IWC China will take place in the first week of June, 2019 in Shanghai.
